A question for more well travelled readers. I have just bought a couple of business return tickets SYD-LHR with Qantas and returning on QF2. Upgrade is out for the flight over as it is on EK aircraft. I looked at using points to upgrade to first on the LHR-DXB leg at 15,000 points each, but the website will only let me upgrade the whole flight at 60,000 points each. I have the points, but want to save them for more flights next year. Can I upgrade the first return leg only online somehow without ringing Qantas, I don't want to sit on the phone for ever? Thanks in advance.

Whilst not a regular business or first traveller (never travelled first), the required 15000 per seat for the whole 23+ hour travel is not bad. I would be jumping on it!. The benefits for that flight for yourself and partner traveller are worth those points. I would also imagine your net points difference would be tiny as a Buiness ticket erans 20k worth of points each, so in real terms will only set you back like 20000 points. (Assuming travel partner is also QFF)

The only way you could do this is by calling QFF. QF2 needs to be showing as two separate legs before this is even possible. That might require ticket revalidation/reissue (along with associated penalties) as it would be like adding a stopover in DXB even though it's only for the 2 hours or so.
